Should pond owners feed their fish with commercial food?

All ponds produce some natural food for fish.

The amount of food produced is a function of the pond's productivity.  Fish populations in most Kansas ponds are not harvested heavily enough to overtax natural food production. Supplemental feeding is thus not usually required, although in special cases feeding can be beneficial.  For more information, click here.
